The first thing that surprising the movie "the Goods" — what he was removed. In recent years, went so few films in the genre of space fiction that this instance was a pleasant surprise.

When viewed on the mind comes to a lot of movies are similar and border crossing genres, what is not just wrote earlier — "2001: a Space Odyssey", "pandorum", "Other", "Matrix", "Dark city", "Hell". Expect something new and extraordinary, respectively, are not necessary.

However, there is such a spectator — "ardent admirer" is called. I of numbers, so I decided to watch a movie, only seen stills (I confess, the real time of the appearance of the picture is completely missed). Space, dark ship, actively pumped atmosphere and the complete lack of genre of impurities. In General, the poet's dream.

The weaknesses of the pattern is obvious — a simple story and negotiatory dramatic moments. However, you can only envy those a highly intelligent audience that the main point of the story identificeret with first frame — I personally two third of the film it was interesting to see what are, although guesses and was. On the first tens of minutes picture

excessive associated with quite fresh "Pandorum", but then this is. With drama too, some puncture, but it, there is such a thought, was provided by the creators of — too smooth background, deep uniform in its glow. Space, cold, human tragedy, lonely people on empty the ship — after "major disaster" has already happened, the person loses the ability to strong emotions: better unlikely worse — impossible. Here this wonderful atmosphere with viewer share with two hours.

the result: great movie for fans of science fiction with psychological stress. I repeat, cons paintings missing, but for fans of the genre every worthy work of this profile — find. To enjoy watching it is desirable to have a penchant for a contemplative mood.

Lately I love to look American movies and films in the genre of "cosmic horror". In the movie "Cargo" is aligned both parameter.

"Cargo" I was not disappoint. Someone pointed out that the acting is absolutely no. I'm not so I think. The actors played exactly as necessary. Moreover, I believe that the absence of excessive emotionality of the characters helped to focus the viewer's attention on the atmosphere of deep space.

Helped picture. Impressed, for example, footage of huge cargo compartment or shots of which the ship flies to station, orbit of the planet uninhabitable. + music these frames were combined perfectly.

Read the positive reviews on this movie and decided to have a look. After watching the thought: "I just have seen the movie?"

There anything that would worthy of attention. The acting is no, it is not at all. And, judging by the behavior of the characters, ecological disaster on Earth has led to a dramatic lowering of IQ to as many of the characters ' actions smack of idiocy (examples not give me, but they're at every step). The plot is simple, sometimes between events disappears the link. Someone says something about that this is a dramatic picture with psychological load. Not know special drama I saw a experiences of the characters look pale (in connection with total absence of them acting talent).

The only thing that somehow rises above the level floor — it is computer graphics. But graphics now have no surprise...

Can't agree, throw me sneakers, but this is my personal opinion. For advise lack the film is banal logic —
